You might want to look at the following:


These are intended for a 3 to 5 day course.  So they are likely to
be too detailed for your needs.  But, you still might want to look
at the table of contents.

Also, it might be of help just to review the table of contents and
the first paragraph of each chapter of a beginner's Python book. 
Alan's book, "Learn to program using Python" or "Learning Python"
by Lutz would give you the topics you need to cover and help with
covering them, too.
